What do you think this How Facebook Decides If You See Nudity or Death (HBO) video?
Facebook employs 4,500 content moderators around the world. Moderators get two weeks of training and a stack of manuals to help them police the site for racism, misogyny, violence, and pornography.
VICE’s partners at The Guardian obtained more than a hundred of these manuals and they offer the first-ever look at the sometimes logical, sometimes inexplicable ways Facebook asks a few thousand people to help patrol its close to 2 billion users.
This segment is part of the May 23rd VICE News Tonight episode.
